I’ve found no better place to discover my potential as a learner than at Wolsey Hall Oxford. The time I have spent working towards completing my secondary education with them has been very encouraging and gratifying. I’ve received such a great amount of support. To add to this, I’ve been happy to discover that the subjects I once thought impossible are the ones I’ve grown to love and do well in. Amazing doesn’t even sum it up for me, it’s been a truly outstanding part of my journey.

“Studied abroad? Homeschooled? In a non-English speaking country?!” They were worried and I was too. Would I even be able to compete with a normal student? Was I disadvantaged? Nervous and terribly apprehensive, I sat my exams. It was a miracle! Paper after paper completed, and with such ease that it amazed me. All of Wolsey’s resources had ensured that I was comfortable during my examination. I recently received my results and there are: A’s in Math, English Language, Geography, Chemistry, Physics, German, and an A* in English Literature. All I can say is thank you, God, and thank you, Wolsey Hall Oxford.

“Homeschooling with Wolsey Hall has been a very delightful experience! The courses are beautifully organized, from the amazing resources on Canvas to the very creative assignments. However, above all, I couldn’t be more thankful to my very encouraging and supportive Tutors and Student Progress Manager who was always very welcoming to each and every question I had. Wholeheartedly, I couldn’t have scored an A* in both Physics and Biology without your help. Thank you!”

I’ve just got my results back and let’s just say I’m so happy! I am very lucky to have done schooling through this system. I used to go to regular school, where although my grades weren’t bad, I was struggling to keep up with everyone. I’ve found the best thing about Wolsey Hall is how I’m able to work at my own pace, so I’m never leaving topics behind that I don’t understand. Every question or problem I’ve had has been answered either through the Canvas resources or by my tutors. I’m really grateful for Wolsey for helping me pass all my exams, and I look forward to continue into my AS and AL years!

My son James was homeschooled and we chose Wolsey Hall to support him. The learning material was clear and concise and he was buoyed by the knowledge that support was only an email away. They say that the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Well, James did a clean sweep of A* and A’s. Job done. Thanks Wolsey Hall.
